SOURCE: presser foot lever does not lift presser foot

If you can remove the cover on the left side you will see the presser foot bar. On the bar there will be a screw that may be loose. Turn the handwheel until the needle is all the way down and lift the foot manually until just before it makes contact with the needle clamp and tighten the screw on the presser foot bar.
That should do it.

SOURCE: Threading bobbin on singer stylist 522

To wind a bobbin put the cotton reel on the top pin, take the thread to the left and round the little wheel and back to the bobbin that should be on the winder, wind the thread round a few times to take a grip, release the stop motion in the balance wheel, turn the winder button so the winder moves to the balance wheel and press on the foot control slowly.
When you put the bobbin in the bobbin case make sure it turns anti clockwise.

How do I replace the slide plate on my Singer 416?


Lift the sewing machine pressure foot and make sure the needle is not in the way. Slide the plate under the foot control. Use a flat head screw driver to lift the spring back onto the plate then slide it back.

Sounds like the linkage between the lifter and foot is caput. If you open the case, you void the warranty.

The pressure foot handle is loose and my foot won't go down what's wrong


Grasp the presser foot bar and pull it down. It is likely that the loose bar has jumped off of the cam on the lever. you'll need to figure out how to get in there and tighten it or replace a broken lever.

Good luck.

Your feet are snap on feet. If you look carefully at them there is a little metal bar across the top. Your foot "carrier" has a little hook-like thing that snaps over that bar. to remove the foot that's on there now, lift your presser foot, grasp the toe of the foot and pull up. This should unsnap it from the carrier. Once it's removed, sit your new foot on the feed dogs below the hook-like thing and lower the presser foot bar... the foot should just snap into place easily. Some of the older ones you had to press down on the thumb screw a little to get it to snap.

I have a 9960 singer machine and am trying to use the buttonhole presser foot for the first time and I can not get it to sew T


the buttonhole foot snaps on to the presser bar, there's a little lever at the back of the presser bar that releases the foot, then put the buttonhole foot down on the needle plate & use the presser foot lifter (number 11) to lower the presser bar down onto the buttonhole foot & you'll hear a click sound when it snaps on & make sure to use the buttonhole lever(number 31) because the machine won't sew a buttonhole unless that lever is pulled down.

I have a singer inspiration 4210 and I'm trying to change the presser foot, I followed the instructions but pressing down on the screww does not snap the foot in place, I have tried using various...


I think you have to position the new presser foot under the shank then drop the presser foot lever down as if you were beginning to sew. This should snap the new presser foot right on. Be sure the little bar is positioned under the hook.

I cannot figure out how the shank attaches to the pressure foot.


Make sure you get a foot designed for this Singer sewing machine. Then for snap-on feet, push down slightly on the front of the foot then pull forward (with some you pull to the left). To insert a new foot, push the foot towards the connector (back or to the right) and then push the back of the foot up (once in contact with the connector) while still moving into the connector. (You should feel the spring lift up and snap around the foot.)

For shanked feet, loosen the thumbscrew and slide the open side over the screw and press against the shaft. Then tighten the thumbscrew.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(my older Singer uses a snap-on zig-zag foot. This foot gets pushed in from the front . Keep the foot below the shank until you have the bars centered around the base of the shank. Then bring the foot up and push back until it snaps into place. There is a horizontal rod between the bars and the shanks locks around that rod. The rest of the feet are shanked.)

I have a Singer 5050 and I can't get the pressure foot to snap on.


Set the foot under the shaft and lower the presser foot lever. The foot should snap on. Sometimes they can be contrary and you have to keep trying.

On some sewing machines there is an adjustment on top of the machine for adjusting the pressure of the presser foot and this sometimes confuses the term.

Hello I have a singer model 4552 I cant make the pressure foot stay up...the lever doesnt raise the foot high enough what doi do?


I have a used unit with the same problem. If you remove the plastic housing piece on the far left you can see how the foot lifter works. Raising the lever raises a collar around the main shaft. There is a screw in that collar which connects the collar with the shaft. If that screw is loose the collar will not raise the shaft. Caution: Tighten the screw very carefully, only enough so that the shaft lifts. I just overtightened and the collar has a crack now.

On my singer 9005 the pressure foot lifter does not stay in the up position - does not hold the pressure foot up.
